Hello! My name is Austin, and my personal life motto is: doing my best to help others realize and reach their best! I have been teaching a number of topics ranging from music, fitness, to technology, writing, and religious texts for over 7 years. Over these years, I have also worked a myriad of jobs to receive invaluable experience as well as learn how to interact with all kinds of people.

It has always been my deep passion and true joy to journey along with someone who is simply willing to learn the many gifts that life has for us to enjoy! I am currently finishing my last semester at San Jose State University, interning at a church in Milpitas, and a certified teacher here at TakeLessons.

Time and time again, I have come to realize that life is about serving, teaching, and loving others with what we already have; teaching is such a simple yet profound way to practice this!

I look forward to doing my best in order to help you realize, reach, and ultimately relish your best!

Best regards,

Austin Ying

My daughter took some public speaking lessons with Austin and I think he helped her improve her communication skills and she is now more confident while speaking in front of an audience!

I learned both the Religious Studies and Bible Studies subjects from Austin. I am so grateful for how patient, clear, and kind he is to his students. Especially because I am a slow-learner. He always takes the extra time as well as effort to help you feel comfortable and confident! Highly recommend him.

Austin taught me all about weight lifting. He helped me to achieve great form that would prevent any future injuries while also seeing much progress!

My 15 year old daughter took her first lesson with Austin. She was thrilled. She talked about it all morning and I will keep you posted on Austin's expertise. Right now, the best in town! Actually, South Bay!
